Abstract [en]

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, urbanization has been present on the global scene. The phenomenon urbanization causes people to move from agricultural areas to cities which contain a higher population density. This has an influence on a municipality level in several ways. Sweden is a decentralized unitary nation and therefore the responsibility for different sorts of welfare services are provided by the municipalities. However, population decline in rural municipalities has led to some difficulties. These rural municipalities are facing challenges when trying to provide and afford their citizens with a satisfactory public service. This paper aims to examine this particular social development and reveal which factors have an impact on population growth in Swedish municipalities 2006-2016. It also studies the correlation and level of explanation of these factors by a bivariate correlation analysis and a multivariate regression analysis. The results suggest that agglomeration effects, job opportunities and commuting are the main factors that impact population growth, and which have had a significance during the chosen time period. In conclusion, this study shows that there are several variables that need to be considered regarding social development in rural municipalities in Sweden to ensure the standard of welfare services.
